Use a prior success to allay feeling like a failure

If you feel bad and unmotivated for slipping up or for whatever reason, use something that you did before to get you motivated to succeed and back on track. If I eat something I shouldn't, I don't sulk and feel guilty. I make myself aware of it and remind myself of a time when I didn't cave in.

Minimize the negativity

I have never been a positive person. Lately, I have been focusing on the positive things that have occurred since beginning my healthy lifestyle instead of the negative. This has profoundly changed my outlook in life in general, not just with weight loss and healthy living.
